O Imagination

Imagination, O Imagination!
You are my life’s adoration.
You I shall not keep afar.
Imagination, O Imagination!

In false, binding lies I shall not cry;
I shall not welcome the life of impurity’s ugliness.
With paltry victory I shall not smile and rejoice.
Imagination, O imagination!

To death’s call I shall not respond.
The soul am I; no death have I.
No more, never, shall I walk along the wrong path.
Imagination, O imagination!
